Even when faced with psychological problems, many men adhere to a stereotypical vision of masculinity that compels them to "tough it out" and handle the situation on their own terms, often overlooking warning signs.
Others, conversely, make a conscious effort to challenge certain beliefs that prevent them from seeking therapy, denouncing practices that have influenced their upbringing and suppressed their emotions. However, social stigma persists, and these men and their narratives are subjected to negative labels and exclusion.
This first episode features multiple testimonies from men who openly share their personal journeys and the challenges they have faced in their quest for mental well-being. Clinical psychologist Sondos Garbouj delves into the shared aspects of their diverse experiences and explores the disconnection between masculinity and emotions, shedding light on the harmful consequences this dynamic can have on men's mental health.
This podcast also offers a platform to examine prevailing educational models that encourage men to solely rely on their own problem-solving abilities or adopt unhealthy coping mechanisms.
Inkyfada Podcast is the first platform entirely dedicated to original Tunisian podcasts, and was conceived by Inkyfada media in collaboration with the in-house research and development laboratory, InkyLab. Inkyfada joined the global podcast boom in 2017, when the team produced the first Tunisian audio documentary, diving deep into the belly of the El Kamour struggle taking place in the desert. Since then, Inkyfada Podcast has produced a wide variety of documentaries, investigations, and podcast series, as well as articles accompanied by music; covering a multitude of contemporary issues in order to offer an immersive and alternative podcast experience. Whilst exclusively offering audio content, the Inkyfada Podcast team upholds the same core values and principles of inkyfada.com, and is committed to producing high quality content though a dynamic and meticulous production process. In addition to the permanent team, Inkyfada podcast works closely with various journalists, artists, illustrators, musicians and other content creators in order to diversify the platform and support artistic creativity. These podcasts differ from traditional radiophonic content in that the applied production and editing process is more akin to cinematographic techniques, in addition to being web-based, downloadable and accessible on demand. Additionally, Inkyfada Podcast uniquely offers subtitles in French, Arabic and English for all audio content, the majority of which is recorded in Tunisian or in the preferred language of the speaker in question.
